There is no better time than the present to anoint another Independence Bank player of the week. Independence Bank is proud to sponsor a weekly article highlighting players in the areas where Independence Bank flourishes who embody the same type of revolutionary service to their respective football teams which has made Independence Bank unique and special in the banking industry. Independence Bank has a goal of achieving everyday excellence, and this week we are focusing on a player whose performance exceeded both the Panthers’ and the Davies County community’s expectations. We are focusing on the class of 2019, QB, Joseph Cambron, from Owensboro, Kentucky, whose Daviess County high school is right down the road from the 3 Independence Bank branches located on 2425 Frederica Street; 3228 KY-54; and 2465 W Parrish Avenue respectively.
Everyone knows Cambron had a big year throwing the pigskin around the football stadium a year ago for Daviess County. In thirteen games, a season ago, this first year starter, who was a junior at the time, completed 236 of his 421 passing attempts for 4,078 yards passing and 49 aerial TDs versus 11 interceptions. Remember, Cambron went into last year with no one knowing who he was. Cambron, an unknown no more, entered 2018 prominently featured on every opponent’s game plan. By Cambron standards, and by that we mean standards which apply only to Joseph Cambron, Joey is off to a slow start. That’s where statistics can be mighty deceiving. KPGFootball believes he is not only playing well but is playing just as efficiently and, and perhaps even more effectively, as he did last year. How can we say that? Well, here’s how…
So far this season Cambron, in playing the same four teams against whom he started off the 2017 season, has completed 73 of 123 passing attempts for 852 yards with 10 TDs. He has a completion percentage of .5935. Now projecting forward these statistics won’t approach last year’s numbers virtually across the board; however, the number one job of a quarterback is to WIN BALL GAMES. This time, last year, against these same four teams, the Panthers, who finished 7-6 when it all shook out, were 1-3. This season, they are 3-1! In Friday night’s performance for the Daviess quarterback, a 20-0 win over a much improved Hancock County team, Cambron was the very picture of both efficiency and effective play. Cambron only attempted 13 passes, but he completed 9 of them, for 140 yards passing and 2 TDs against zero interceptions. We admire efficiency and effective play together with a quarterback who delivers the bottom line, wins, for his team at both Independence Bank and at KPGFootball! That is why, this week, we honor Joseph Cambron.
Congratulations to Joseph Cambron from the Daviess County Panthers from Owensboro, Kentucky for his Revolutionary Play which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky…your friends at Independence Bank.
